Beautiful boat and all, but a 13whaler is where i started.
And i wouldn't care to be boating at all if i wasn't driving, espcially that thing.

I think a 15yr old in south florida would have more fun in a nice new 24 pantera or the like.

I'll bet some above "15 yr old" puzzy starts showing up on that boat !

That alone is worth the investment for a father.......

I am sure this is just a toy to go with their big boat.

Not old enough to drive? Order a 1.5m cig and hire a captain, problem solved.

15 year old will be on crack if not already. Lost cause.

Just my .02

Just because the 15 year old owns the boat doesn't mean he isn't responsible or doesn't know the value of work or money. I have seen lazy affluent kids and I have seen affluent kids who bust their azzes and are very cognizant when it comes to the value of a buck and work.

A thirteen year old owning a 13 ft boston whaler in Nambia would be considered "rich". It's all relative.

Great point. Its all relative. So where do I send my resume to be the on call captain in case the other one needs a vacation.

Turbines would be awesome in that also and maybe cheaper in the long run.

Great looking boat, no doubt....however there are some jealous people on here! Maybe this 15 year works hard....if he/she bought this boat with their own money they are probably an actor.
That is one expensive toy but I bet a lot of fun too.

I grew up in an affluent community and a kid in my high school had exclusive use of a new Top Gun (Dad had bad knees and couldn't even board the boat!) and routinely drove a Ferrari when his 535 was not around. So fast forward a few years and a million dollar Cig isn't that insane........

I can't believe after 67 posts you sleuths haven't figured out who's boat this is!




What family on the board is die hard Cigarette?







What family has two sons?







What family has their current Cig in the OSO Classified?








Feeling Lucky?







Anyone care to take a Strike at it?
